Product Description

Whoa, this is a wine with great potential, but the 2014 Barbaresco Currá needs at least another two years to just chill out. It's way too tightly wound at the moment. This vineyard is right next door to Cottà, but the Currà (the accents here reflect the real spelling of these MGA crus) is a whole different animal altogether. The soil that lies underground accounts for the difference. This Barbaresco is closed and hard if released too early, and this vintage definitely needs more time to show that elegance, which is bound to be remarkable when it does. The fabric of the mouthfeel is different, to say the least, but there is much more complexity as well. 95 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

This comes from a plot of vines up to 70 years old in Neive’s Currà cru. It produces a formidably tannic wine, which the Sottimanos hold in bottle a year longer than their other Barbarescos. Yet the tannins in the 2014 remain forceful, underlining the wine’s dark-cherry flavors like cool, polished metal. Woodsy tones emerge as the wine is exposed to air, the wine taking on a meaty aspect as it gains notes of cedar, spice and tobacco. Although it’s already complex and layered, this wine will benefit from another five years of cellaring. 95 Points Wine & Spirits

A firm and linear red with cherry, cedar and light hazelnut aromas and flavors. Medium to full body. Compacted and refined tannins. Excellent for 2014. Give it a year or two. Try after 2021. 94 Points James Suckling
